know nevada better than anyone. that is your town and you write extensively on the demographics, the change. we have talked about reid and his victory there and certainly some would have said was beatible but not by sharon angle. with that said, you have got the president on the ground in nevada. why is that -- i guess a perfect place if you will for this launch to hear from him in about 40 minutes or so? >> well, tamron, even though we are not a border state, we are an emblem of what's happening in this country. the hispanic population is burgeoning for sometime. now about a quarter of the state. it was about 20% of the electorate and talk about the election results that john mccain was talking about yesterday. barack obama won the latino vote about 55 points here in 2012. about the same percentage that he won by in 2008. and look at where the president is going today to make the announcement. going to a high school which is about 62% hispanic population of kids. maybe the biggest problem in this state facing the education system is a lot of hispanic kids who have come here and

think that's wrong. but if you look at, for example, the state that the president was in today, nevada, there is a republican hispanic governor in the state, very popular, brian sandoval. you look at new mexico republican hispanic governor susana martinez. part of the problem republicans have communicating to hispanics is the total utter toxicity of the republican brand, the washington, d.c. brand. but once you're able to break out of that d.c. brand, republicans are able to put an imprint that is appropriate for nevada or new mexico on the party. and you're finding success there. now, i don't think that the numbers that you talked about on those issues are permanent. republicans when we just finish the presidential election where we were doomed by comments like the 47%, we need to have a message that reaches out to every american, is about empowerment, is about climbing the socio-economic ladder, about revitalizing the american middle class that has been in decline. we have to talk about those things. we have to have plans that are grounded in reality to deal with the problems that am

doing the column, nevada ski and i had lunch and i said, what were you thinking of paying for each column? and he said some pain in the high two figures. [laughter] die two figures? said we've been paying about $65. that sounds at the middle two figures to me. i turned over to my high-powered literary agent and i said play hard. he got them up to 100. i said how much we think and it he set a date for you to do one of these homes every week for the nation. and for those of you unfamiliar with the nation, i was on a book tour once that the collection of nation columns and reporter in boston said how would you describe the nation for our readers unfamiliar with it? and i said can go.

-hitting senators made hur to put on the their announcement today ahead of the president's announcement in nevada tomorrow to show that there's bipartisan supports, to make sure that they didn't look as if they were following the president, which wouldn't be good for republicans in the group. while there is momentum among the elite in washington, we're not sure how this will play outside yet, and we saw back in 2007 you had ted kennedy aligned with the senate on the democratic side. you had john mccain on the republican side. the maverick came together and mccain got crushed on this issue. it was very damaging to him both in his presidential and also in his senate re-elect, so i think it's what's important to watch here as the immigration stuff unrolls this week. it's how are grassroots particularly conservatives reacting to these proposals. >> and the next big step coming up we've got a vote in the senate foreign relations committee tomorrow on john kerry. that's going to be automatic. he is going to be breezed through and voted for and hillary clinton leaves friday. he will be coming in next mo
the bipartisan plan. president obama is flying to nevada to push the issue there. there was a flash of the old straight talking john mccain today when he was asked why republicans are suddenly ready to compromise so much on immigration. >> one, as i have stated before elections, elections, the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens. and we realize that there are many issues in which we think we are in agreement with our hispanic citizens. but this is a preeminent issue with those citizens. >> today's developments left one right-wing republican observer completely dumbfounded. >> if the democrats think their position on immigration, let's use that for example, is the right one, and if the democrats' position is what is getting all that support from hispanic voters, what i don't understand is why would the democrats want to give up some of those voters to the republicans? can somebody help me out here. >> i don't know, rush, sounds like you're beyond help, but i'll give it a try. what you are seeing is not a compromise on immigration. you are seeing republicans surrender
in what used to be mexico, las vegas, nevada, to urge congress to overhaul the immigration system. >> today i'm laying out my ideas for immigration reform. and my hope is that this provides some key markers to members of congress as they craft a bill. because the ideas i'm proposing have traditionally been supported by both democrats like ted kennedy and republicans like president george w. bush. you don't get that matchup very often. >> the president's plan is similar to the plan eight bipartisan senators put forward yesterday, but it has not even cleared the path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in the united states now. >> for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a path to citizenship. we have got to lay out a path. a process that includes passing a background check. paying taxes, paying a penalty. learning english. and then going to the back of the line behind all the folks who are trying to come here legally. that is only fair. all right. >> under the president's proposal, undocumented workers would be re
to go for sharon ang gel when harry reid was dead man walking politically in nevada, to make one bad choice after another is guaranteed that still a senate majority leader. the republican party is either going to grow up and be responsible and follow william f. buckley's advice that you will elect the most electable conservative or they're going to go the way of the whigs. >> rose: you said a republican will continue the dreadful collapse unless they adopt william f. buckley's view that conservatism is expressed in pure idealism takes into account reality. michael, let me go back to the people on the cover of "time" magazine. clearly what happened in newtown is the driving force and it is a country thinking about the future of its children but it does have allies with resources, the power of gabrielle giffords story and the power of michael bloomberg's meg phone both in terms of money as well as connections >> that's right, when i talked with david keene, president of the n.r.a., one of the things he pointed to you is his concern that we're reentering the fight that we haven't seen t
for com prehundredsive immigration reform and he'll do that tuesday in nevada where the white houses president obama will double down on proposals that he's supported since taking office with the hope that this time the appetite on the hill is a little more hungry for change. >> what has been absent in the time he's put those principles forward has been the willingness by republicans to move forward with comprehensive immigration reform and what he hopes is that dynamic has changed. >> joining me now from the white house, white house correspondent, kristin welker, the president expected to give us the contours of a plan tuesday in las vegas. at this point do we have any idea what it will look like? >> craig, good afternoon. i think you will hear president obama unveil his vision for comprehensive immigration reform and i don't think it will be widely different from what he's talked about. in the past, remember, this is something he's been talking about since 2008 when he first ran for president. now it looks like he may have more support after they lost the latino vote so largely dur
on tuesday with a speech in nevada, a battleground state whose growing latino vote helped him win the november election. >> i am here today because the time has come for common sense, comprehensive immigration reform [applause] we have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a pathway to citizenship. >> president obama omitted detailed proposals from his address, instead backing the bipartisan senate plan that includes a path to citizenship for a large number of the estimated 11 million undocumented people in the u.s., but also tougher border enhancement -- enforcement and a system for tracking those who overstay visas. obama took aim at anti-immigrant sentiment, saying foreign nationals are being maligned by people who forget their own ancestral past. >> it is easy sometimes for the discussion to take on a feeling of "us versus them." when that happens, a lot of folks forget mos
the imintegration issue ta may have been their undoing. voters from nevada to florida told cnn suggests like self-deportation by mitt romney hurt the republicans' chances at the white house. >> there are a lot of the latinos that want obama to win so that they won't be deported back to their country. >> they couldn't get elected this year, couldn't get elected today but we are going to have a conversation about this. if we don't do better with hispanics we are going to be out of the white house forever. >> forever is a long time. and if republicans expect to rally for the presidency in 2016, reyes says the magic number is 35. >> the magic number that any candidate needs in order to win the president i is 35% of latino voters because these days, the fact is, owing to demographics, the road to the white house goes through latino neighborhoods. this also has to do with the fact that they tend to be in many of the most important swing states like nevada, colorado, florida. so any candidate or party who hopes to compete and be relevant nationally must at least meet that threshold number. >> in 2012, g

the cars street legal in nevada, florida, and california. it promises to bring safer roads and lower insurance rates says insurance analyst donald blithe. >> if you get 60%, 70% on the road that are driverless, insurance goes down because accidents are way down. premiums could fall 80% to 90%. >> reporter: with less than 33,000 fatalities in 2011 traffic has climbed to its lowest point since 1999. but today over 90% of the accidents are caused by driver error. so the sooner we get drivers off the wheel, the safer the roads will be. >> some are talking about cars in the 2015 time frame that will drive forrist if you're stuck in a traffic jam on a freeway. so think we're seeing the first instances of this technology not too many years away. >> yikes. wow. >> reporter: still, take it from me. it takes a leap of faith to leave the driving up to the car. for "cbs this morning," john blackstone, willits, california. >> you cannot stop the future. i love the idea of automatic pil pilot. putting it i mm i went potty! th'sreat, honey.... wher for life's bleachable moments. >>> there's a new s
